NOTA BENE: This is not meant to glorify the Confederate States of America, but, African-Americans served on both sides in the U.S. Civil War, believe it or not? Not only African-Americans, but Native American Indians also served in the confederate and union armies and navies. Here are photographs taken during the years 1861 to 1865 and up to 1923, possibly to 1940?

View of the Hebrews is an 1823 book written by Ethan Smith , a United States Congregationalist minister, who argued that Native Americans were descended from the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. This was a relatively common view during the early nineteenth century, as most Europeans and Americans had a view of history as biblical. Numerous commentators on Mormon history, from LDS Church general authority B. H. Roberts to Fawn M. Brodie, biographer of Joseph Smith, have noted similarities in the...

Nikolai Vasilevich Gogo l (Russian: Никола́й Васи́льевич Го́голь) (March 31, 1809 – March 4, 1852) was a Ukrainian-born Russian writer. Although many of his works were influenced by his Ukrainian heritage and upbringing, he wrote in the Russian language and his works are among the most beloved in the tradition of Russian literature. Gogol is seen by most critics as the first Russian realist. His biting satire, comic realism, and descriptions of Russian provincials...
